The Creative Block
The Creative Block features 300 sheets in a variety of twelve different creative prompts, designed to get your pen moving.
We all know about creative block. Whether it’s caused by limiting beliefs, no inspo, an unexplained low, lack of space… Whatever the reason, it sucks.
So how do you turn the tap back on? How do you get your ideas to flow again? How do you get back to that feeling of exhilarating creativity? The one where you’ve got it all at your fingertips. It’s in your hands. You’re a genius at work. But you’re staring at a blank page. And the tap is dry.
In 2017, we designed a testing pad for our stores to encourage you guys to pick up our pens and get them moving. To get your draw on. To have some fun. Wordplay or pencil play. Pressure-free. No big deal.
Since we made them, you’ve been asking to buy them. Everyday.
Well, now you can.
We call it The Creative Block. We got stuck on the name.
It's designed by us upstairs at our Bristol store and printed by our buddies down the road. We've used an uncoated 100gsm Italian paper stock made with 80% recycled fibres and 20% ECF virgin fibres. It's FSC® certified, acid free, chlorine free, biodegradable, recyclable and, we hope you'll be pleased to hear, it comes without any unnecessary packaging.
It's the first Papersmiths paper product and we're proud as punch.
The twelve prompts are:
